“We’re delighted to receive the Probate Provider of the Year Award for Large Firms at the 2019 British Wills and Probate Awards.

This award is for the Kings Court Trust team and our dedicated business partners, as it recognises all the hard work, service and care they provide to our clients.

It’s a real testament to our excellent team who provide an outstanding service to the families who entrust us to take care of their estate administration.”

Karen Babington, Director at Today’s Wills and Probate said:

“Following on from the success of the inaugural British WIlls & Probate Awards in 2018, 2019 promised to be bigger and better... and it didn't disappoint.

The quality of the submissions surpassed our expectations; being shortlisted was an achievement in itself and all the winners on the night can be rightly proud of their achievements.
